OnePlus 9 and OnePlus 9 Pro receive stable Android 12 with OxygenOS 12 update

The OnePlus 9 and OnePlus 9 Pro are two fantastic devices that launched this year, and we’ve been waiting quite a long time to see what the company does when it comes to the OxygenOS-ColorOS merger. While it’s pretty clear that the Android 12 previews for both devices were based on ColorOS, they still retain the OxygenOS look and feel, for now. That said, OnePlus seems to be rolling out a stable version of Android 12 for the OnePlus 9 series for some users now, and we already have some of the download links.

The highlights of OxygenOS 12, in addition to the conversion to Android 12, are some new features and quality of life improvements, such as the Shelf always accessible from the notification bar. Since this is the stable version, we expect it to be released to all users within the next week, unless major bugs are found. You can wait for your device to be picked up at the staged launch, or you can download the update using the download links provided below. The next major update for the OnePlus 9 series will ship the unified operating system combining the best of OxygenOS and ColorOS, and that operating system will ship in the upcoming OnePlus flagship as well.
